St. Francis Mission Statement

ST. FRANCIS IS . . .
• where faith expresses itself in hospitality.
• where God's love is expressed in its fullest meaning.
• where Jesus Christ is alive and well and celebrating in SE Portland.
• where the gospel message of active love is made manifest.



ST. FRANCIS IS . . .
• community that finds its health in attempting to serve the neighborhood in its many needs, physical, spiritual and human. In this way we form and support the people of God to reach out rather than build a safe place to be. Though members come from many different neighborhoods, we call upon all to be the church concerned for the core area,  inner-city ministry. This is the primary way of affecting a change in the wider community.

ST. FRANCIS IS . . .
• a community that acknowledges and honors the ministries in which each person is engaged --life, in family, in work in the St. Francis Community.

ST. FRANCIS IS . . .
• a community where theology, education, liturgy, and social involvement are all dimensions of one reality
